Kirkconnel House was possibly a 14th century stone fortified manor house, founded by the Kirkconnel family. In the 16th century, the Maxwell family founded the rectangular four storey tower house and its vaulted basement is still lit by crosslet shot-holes. A 17th century stair-wing crowned by a caphouse, made the tower L-plan and the many other additions and adjoining extensions, are probably mid to late 18th century in date. Nearby is Abbot's Tower and 6 miles north is Mote of Troqueer.
